For easy access, here were the two activities that Meggie and I did at the meeting:

Hi Folks,
I just posted a simplified version of the Species Survey for Freshwater Habitats. It includes everything that is needed to upload to the VS database, but is presented in a version I use with 4th and 5th graders.
Hope all is well!

Science Friday Spoonfuls are doses of current science, technology, and engineering stories ready for the classroom. Each Spoonful contains a short piece of media (article, video, radio interview), a transcript (for video and radio), student questions, and activity suggestions for extending student exploration into the science behind the story.

Introduce your students to the circadian rhythm of microbes, the astronomer who pinned down the elusive Planet Nine, or even the researchers who created a 3D-printed glove that can give you different fingerprints! With brand new stories each week, you can find one that aligns to a concept you’re getting ready to teach or you can simply use them to bring more STEM news into the classroom.

Spoonfuls are tagged with subject area and topic alignments. Simply search for your topic in the Spoonfuls search bar (located in the upper right corner) or use the ‘Archive’ link at the bottom of the homepage to look through all the stories.
